New Bedford, Mass. – Imtra, a leading manufacturer of advanced LED Solutions, announced today its new line of ultra-thin profile wallplates and switches, the Vimar Eikon Evo Switching System. Square, symmetrical and precisely flat in profile, the Vimar Eikon Evo switches meet the very latest design trend projecting only millimeters from the wall. A convenient and attractive way to control a vessel's lighting, ventilation and entertainment, as well as other appliances and onboard accessories, the Vimar Eikon Evo Switching wallplates and switches from Imtra are the ideal solution for discerning boat owners and captains, and will be appreciated by all guests and crew.
The Evo line, available through Imtra, elevates on board switching to the highest standards in style, mechanical design and function. Featuring elegant geometries, the Vimar Eikon Evo Switching System offers essential details including a distinctive chrome plated frame that surrounds the controls. Plate sizes are available to accommodate 2-module, 3-module, 4-module and 7-module switch configurations. Special combination plates are also available for vertical or horizontal mountings that accommodate two x two, two x three and two x four modules.
“Eikon Evo wallplates and switches are designed to stand out and be noticed while coordinating perfectly with the very latest interior design trends,” said Colby Chevalier, lighting sales director, Imtra. “Our new Evo line combines innovations that are both beautiful to look at and easy to use.”
The Vimar Eikon Evo Switching System is available in six exclusive materials — aluminum alloys, Corian®, as well as varieties of exotic woods, stone, crystal and natural leather. Each material is meticulously selected and crafted in the Italian tradition that is Vimar’s trademark. A patented joint-pin system ensures extremely quiet, "soft action" manipulation of devices and switch controls. An exclusive "Plack-Clack" attachment system makes installation of switch components virtually effortless, and allows components to be quickly and easily installed or removed from the front of the cover plate assembly. Backlighting of symbols and customized laser engraving of both wallplates and modules are available. The Vimar Eikon Evo Switching System from Imtra is backed by a three-year warranty.
